Do you think it is possible to rip out the Proprietary software of the WD My Cloud and install a perfect server on it? I am itching to give it a go, I've bricked the thing already, had to re-image the 2 rootfs partitions. That took a little bit of doing since one needs a bootable Linux OS and you tear open the box and connect the SATA via USB (Used a BlacX docking station). Now... I am on a Mac, and there was the dilemma, do I install Ubuntu or not, decided to use a DVD and run the try out, without messing with my Mac MBR. I could go on more but I was able to restore the box back to factory settings after not being able to connect to it via the network. Anyhow... maybe it could work. Serving up DHCP/DNS/Web/FTP Since it is a mini computer with Debian installed on it. I also run a mac mini as a file server and a VirtualBox running Ubuntu which I tried the perfect server on it and it worked fine. Used to just use MAC OS X server, but really it's not that great. Anyone out there ever tried the WD My Cloud box?
